Links around the Peak District
Buxton Tourist Information Centre moved from the Crescent to its new home in the Pavilion Gardens in 2008 and has since become one of the busiest in the region.
Our friendly staff have a great knowledge and understanding of the region and can advise you on anything from walks and public transport through the famous Peak District countryside, to local events and fun activities for all the family to enjoy.
We have an accommodation advice service which can take the stress out of your stay and save valuable time on short breaks.
